Today Hutton-in-the-Forest reflects centuries of history and change. A house of six periods between the mid 14th and the mid 19th centuries, Hutton is a rich illustration of the development of the country house in the North of England.

A tour through the many rooms at Hutton is a remarkable journey in time. From the medieval Stone Hall to the high Victorian Drawing Room and the splendid Hall, the rooms are rich in history and notable for their contents. Every room has fine examples of furniture of its period and there is also an interesting collection of contemporary ceramics.

 

The Cupid Room, Hutton-in-the-Forest

The Cupid Room

Perhaps the finest room in the house, the Cupid Room is the first of a suite of three rooms designed for Henry Fletcher in the 1740s. This architectural room is named after the Cupid centerpiece of the delicate rococo ceiling, for which the plasterer Joseph Rose the Elder was paid £25 in 1745.
